Whale watching from our cliffs and breakwaters can present some extremely close encounters. Whales frequent Portland Bay as a part of their annual breeding migration and can often been seen up very close to our beaches and breakwaters as they frolic and play with their young. Portland is also the hub for other activities such as fishing charters, cable tram rides, cycling and walking paths, National Parks, Maritime Discovery centre, Lighthouses, Historical buildings, shopping and skate park.
